An a journey

I want to invite you to join me on a on to find out what I'm talking about.

Each new year brings new goals, and for years I have toyed around with trying to read through the Bible in a year....but that is about as far as it ever gets. It always seemed (and still does) like too big a challenge....and a goal I would certainly fall short of. BUT, if I have learned anything at all in 2009, it has been the necessity of discipline in studying the truths of scripture. I have learned that in the midst of trials, when everything feels chaotic and out of control, the scriptures are where I can find rest.

My feelings and circumstances will surely change, but TRUTH is always....well, true. I have been thrown into battles this year and found myself ill-equipped to war with Satan. How can I war against him in prayer and protection on my family and marriage, when I don't know the truths found in scripture? I can hardly discipline myself to 30 minutes, 3 days a week. Many weeks, I am doing well to get one day in. I am ashamed to say it.

So, if you can relate to any of this, I would like to invite you to go on this journey with me in 2010. I don't know how it will look, but I am certain it will be difficult. Another thing I am certain of is that God will indeed show up and that it may be easier if we do this together. I will be following this schedule and will post at least 3 times a week on the reading for reflection and discussion. Hopefully this will help me with my lack of posting as well! I would love for you to come along on this journey with me.

I think this sounds like a really good journey to embark which i believe i will join you on. it's due time that i actually spent more than a couple of minutes every now and then with our Creator...

Thank you for the challenge, Lindsey.

So glad you are taking on this challenge with me! Can't wait to see what happens!

P.S.: I keep trying to comment on your blog, but for some reason, it isn't giving me the option. It may be something on my end, but didn't want you to think I stopped reading!
